It meant their city advantage at the start is less meaningful while the Han officers' command capacity grew larger and larger.

I wiped out He Jin as Yellow Turban and deposed the Emperor - and that is the only way the Yellow Turbans can implement a title grant system. But there's no event attached to it. Pretty disappointing.

Yes, YT's best and only strategy is to concentrate immediately one Luoyang and destroy the Emperor - while the backlines capture empty cities in the Northeast.

OMG Liu Bei with events starting in 184 is so boring hahaha

Currently 199 I think, Cao Cao just wiped out Lu Bu and I've maxed Qiao without actively trying. I am going to try to boggle the Guan Yu Surrenders event a bit, I am thinking that I can exile non-essentials just prior to the event and their rapport will not plummet. Let's see.

I also finally worked out the events bonus thing that kept bothering me - when someone asks for supplies to do more or where to cultivate stuff. The base bonus is for low prosperity; medium is halved I think, high is 20%. So if it's below 5 points on low, yeah you get zero, which renders some options useless since the bonus is like 3.

I rarely seem to get any commerce/culture events...

Heh, well I've figured out one cheat of sorts. Even though I've been buying useful items, Liu Bei still has like 30,000+ gold by the time 200 rolls around when starting in 184. So the moment I got put in Xinye, I immediately put him on city development duty. Just pick the cheapest option and then max each stat out with your personal gold. I can't see any other realistic way to get on your feet in Xinye after losing everything, the city needs to get profitable fast.

Edit: Then I cheated my cheat. :?

Just solicit gold from Liu Biao. Going the way I posted above, I was up and running with elite spears by 204 and started raiding Wan for those sweet sweet Wei supplies. But I blew a few thousand gold and tons of merit on my ruler...
